The Electrolightz Remix Yvette Rovira + MP3

The Electrolightz are at it again, and now, with the help of newcomer Yvette Rovira.  The well-known pop-electro-hip-hop group have been on a popular remix streak with Lady Gaga’s “Telephone” and “Bad Romance,” Mary J Blige’s “I Am”, La Roux’s “Bulletproof”, and now Yvette Rovira’s “Let’s Go Out Tonight”.  With a bit of the Electrolightz energy and spunk, the party anthem “Let’s Go Out Tonight” from her self-titled album Yvette Rovira becomes a real club banger to keep you out ’til the sun comes up.

Working with producer Rob Mounsey (Rihanna, Mary J. Blige), emerging artist Yvette Rovira has strong musical talents flavored with Latin-inspired percussion, funk and old-school R&B references, all sung with a distinctive power and passion.

Frogg EP: “Bitch” Remixes + MP3

Frogg is one third homegrown UK talent and London vocalist Mills, who brings her eclectic music foundation, which lies squarely between guitar songwriting and drum ‘n bass. Fusing rap with a raw, English-witted tongue and vocals that harness an individual RnB flava, Mills crosses the British Isles to the open and free music lights of Berlin.

The complementing two thirds of the group are homegrown Berlin talents, who draw on dubby electronic grooves and strong beats, without forgetting the importance of melody. Mo Delgado (Seeed), the production hub of Frogg, brings his earthy and playfully diverse approach, creating a sound that is simply fresh. Luke 4000 (Seeed) is the supporting power, bringing things together and enforcing the onstage funk.

The Berlin-based band released their debut album Blink Blink worldwide in September 2009 under BMG Rights Management. Blink Blink demonstrates Frogg’s open perspective on music genres. The band’s energetic live shows have so far enjoyed live highlights such as support slots for De La Soul & Miss Platnum.

Strut Records Compilation: Walter Gibbons, Mixed With Love
